Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from Ricita:

Mathematical ideas to solve various problems of our everyday life, environment related problems.

Hi Ricita,

I have two suggestions for you.

First go to the Quandaries and Queries page on Math Central

and use the Quick Search to search for the term math beyond school. The search engine will return a number of requests we have received from people who have mathematical question in their everyday lives, along with our responses. If you are looking for a particular mathematical concept that we have use, say for example trigonometry, then search for the term math beyond school trig.

The second suggestion is that you go to the Math Beyond School section of Math Central and look at what is there. This is more about people who use mathematics in their careers.
